Infused Waters

Infused waters

I've  been experimenting with some infused waters lately. They're fun to make, easy to drink and make you feel super healthy! Below are the 3 flavour combinations I tried, and at the bottom you'll find even more ideas. The sky is the limit basically! It's important to leave the concoction to steep overnight before drinking.

Version One: Fennel & Citrus

10 cups of water
Half a fennel bulb thinly sliced
1 lemon (squeeze the juice into the water first, then slice the lemon and add)
1 orange thinly sliced
12 fresh chopped mint leaves

Version Two: Lemon & Cucumber

10 cups of water
1/2 telegraph cucumber thinly sliced
1 lemon thinly sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped basil leaves
1/3 cup finely chopped mint leaves

Version Three: Blackberry & Sage

10 cups of water
1 cup blackberries slightly crushed (I used frozen)
6 - 8 sage leaves (twist them a bit to release the aroma)

Other ideas… (always with 10 cups water)

* 1 cup cubed watermelon + 2 rosemary stems

* 1 cup chopped pineapple + 12 chopped mint leaves

* 1 cup chopped apple + 2 cinnamon sticks

* 2 cups cooled ginger tea + 5 small chunks peeled fresh ginger

* 1 cup raspberries + 1 thinly sliced lime + 12 fresh chopped mint leaves
